Arctic Paper Kostrzyn S.A. has been continuously working on modernizing its machine fleet for last several years. The priority is, invariably, an increase of production capacity, an improvement of final products’ quality parameters and implementation of environmentally friendly & energy-saving solutions. Arctic Paper Kostrzyn S.A. for years have been partnering with PMP applying ambitious technological projects. In addition, both companies support the idea of "good, because it is Polish".
In 2019, PMP successfully rebuilt a press section of PM#1 with a new Intelli-Nip® shoe press included. The solution proposed by PMP improved dryness after press from 43% before rebuilt to 48% after rebuilt. The technology of the shoe press also enhanced properties of paper, and also significantly improved PM efficiency.
PM1, 5300 mm @reel, after rebuild, produces offset paper, with a grammage range from 60 to 100 gsm. The operating speed after rebuilt is 1000 mpm. PMP's scope of delivery included: press section equipped with the Intelli-Nip® shoe module (maximum design pressure 600 kN/m, shoe module diameter 1100 mm); this is the first PMP reference for a module with a smaller diameter. In addition, PMP provided controls, replacement parts and assembly and commissioning supervision.
As a result of so far a fruitful cooperation, in April 2020, PMP signed another contract with Arctic Paper Kostrzyn team, for a revamp of a press section, this time for another machine. The purpose of the rebuild is to improve the condition of the section framework and to eliminate vibrations.
PM2, 5300 mm @reel and an annual capacity of 160,000 tons, produces single-layer wood-free graphic paper with a grammage range from 60 to 170 gsm. The scope of supply will cover an entire new framework, including press roll swing arms, savealls, platforms, mechanical drives as well as assembly and commissioning supervision service. The framework will be entirely made of stainless steel. The investment is planned for summer 2021.
